Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0789716151, Paperback)

Harley Hahn Teaches the Internet uses plain language to introduce you to all of the vital lanes of the information superhighway. The author doesn't assume readers have any knowledge of the Internet, yet doesn't insult their intelligence by providing a cursory introduction, either. From e-mail to streaming media, Hahn helps to demystify all of the important aspects of the Net.

The book predictably begins with an overall introduction to the Internet. However, its focus remains on the questions and concerns that new users are likely to have, rather than boring technical details. Throughout the book, the author stops to define acronyms as they come up and liberally uses "hint" boxes for special tidbits.

Hahn then moves on to explain all of the various protocols on the Net: the basics behind sending and receiving e-mail, ensuring safety and security, working with search engines, and using plug-in applets. This is a lot of material, but it is presented well. The book also explains how to download programs, browse newsgroups, subscribe to mailing lists, and chat with others online.

The book wraps up with a basic discussion on creating your own Web site and getting your own domain name. This book is a just plain fun way to learn tons about the Internet. --Stephen Plain
